Digital Nirvana Offers Migration Path As Volicon Observer Support Ends

Deep knowledge of Observer and unique product development provides a solution for Volicon users to continue broadcasting with confidence.

With the announcement of the end of sales and support of the Volicon Observer broadcast monitoring and compliance logging product, Digital Nirvana is leveraging its MonitorIQ broadcast monitoring and compliance logging platform and the company's solution-specific expertise to enable a seamless migration path for Volicon users.

MonitorIQ is a secure, easy-to-use solution that allows broadcasters to record, store, monitor, analyze, and repurpose content. The Linux platform enables broadcasters to collect and use knowledge about their broadcast content to meet a wide range of regulatory and compliance requirements. It also gives broadcasters access to AI-based cloud microservices for closed caption generation, caption quality assessment, caption realignment, and video intelligence for objects, ads, logos, and facial recognition.

The Observer Connection

"I and many of my colleagues at Digital Nirvana contributed to development and refinement of the Observer feature sets that broadcasters know so well today," said Keith DesRosiers, director of sales solutions at Digital Nirvana. "We know the Observer product inside and out, and we've built on that knowledge and experience to design and deliver new forward-looking solutions with which broadcasters can gain greater insight into aired content — and derive greater value from that content. MonitorIQ goes beyond regulatory and compliance requirements, giving broadcasters access to valuable next-generation tools for content processing and analysis."

"Broadcasters have a window of opportunity between now and June to make a thoughtful decision about how they will move forward with broadcast monitoring and compliance logging. With Digital Nirvana and MonitorIQ, they can opt for the best-available migration route now, with full confidence that they're investing in a company and product that will continue to evolve along with the industry," said Russell Wise, senior vice president of sales and marketing for Digital Nirvana. "We've been very pleased with the number of Volicon users that have already migrated to MonitorIQ. The market seems to understand that we have valuable past experience as well as the forward-looking vision to take them wherever they want to go."
